What Makes the Best Belt for Big and Tall Guys?
Unfortunately, as a big and tall guy, purchasing a belt that fits perfectly is not a walk in the park. I think of it like choosing shoes. While I could choose a regular shoe, it’ll wear faster than if I bought a heavy-duty option. From a financial and durability point of view, it makes sense to spend a little extra to have something that will serve me for longer.
As a big guy, you should look for the belt with the highest quality, and that fits you perfectly. And no, don’t mistake this to mean paying a premium for a designer brand or any other high-end name you know. Instead, search for a belt made of leather and that is wide enough to fit through the belt loops in your pants. The buckle should also be strong and curved for added comfort.
If you can find a belt with double stitching, even better since this will withstand more torque as you go about your daily routine.
As for belt color, the golden rule of thumb is to match your belt to the shoes your wear while you match your socks to your pants. Generally, if you have a lot of brown shoes, then a brown belt will work just fine. However, we recommend having multiple belt colors for an easier time mixing and matching your colors and style.
Belt Fashion Tips
As an overweight guy, I first learned to accept my body as it is. Only then was I able to turn the fashion tides to my benefit. These are tips I use that you can put to use:
- Buy fitted pants and wear them up to your waist. Don’t look twice at those baggy pants that will hide under your belly since they will only make your belly look larger and your legs even shorter.
- Purchase extra-long shirts and then tuck them in your pants. Having a shirt untucked and exposing your belly, butt, or back will make you look unkempt.
- Buy a great belt. If you have to pull your pants up every two steps, then the above two tips will not make a difference in your fashion. Get a belt for a big and tall guy like the BelaPala Big and Tall Belts for Men to vastly improve your comfort and style.
Last but not least, ask yourself the right questions. Instead of worrying about how a fat guy should dress, focus on how a fashionable guy should dress, and you’ll start to notice the difference.
